Experience Hong Kong from a new perspective. Unspoilt hill country and outlying islands, where you walk through lush open countryside and along deserted coastal paths, far away from the crowds.

Hong Kong is a beguiling place to visit; a teeming metropolis with a harbour surrounded by skyscrapers but with the attraction of walking in the backdrop of the relatively remote and unspoiled New Territories. The Chinese metropolis is full of colour: markets, shopping precincts, streets flashing with illuminated signs and shops filled with strange goods and foods from mainland China. The harbour scenes are a myriad of ferries, sampans, junks and floating restaurants. A walk to the lofty heights of Victoria Peak overlooking all of this is a must!

Beyond the maze of streets and skyscrapers lies another world of unspoilt hill country and countless islands little changed for centuries. Numerous ferries ply these outlying islands, havens of peace far from the crowds. We’ll wander across Lantau Island to find Tai O, a little village which seems to come out of the Middle Ages, and walk on car free Lamma Island. North of Kowloon towards the border with mainland China we come to the New Territories, protected by National Country Park status and crossed by the Maclehose Trail. The colonial Kowloon-Canton Railway gives easy access to mainland China – ideal for a ‘free day’ adventure (a visa is required if you decide to do this).

Hong Kong is a superb holiday destination and delivers far more than you might have imagined or believed possible.

Holiday Highlights
